Frequently asked questions

What’s your pricing like?

It’s completely free to browse and interview GrandNannies. Register now to get started.

Once you’ve found a GrandNanny you love, we charge a one-off ‘Safe Start’ fee of £350 to cover contracts, set up and all checks and training. Your all-in hourly rate will vary depending on the GrandNanny you choose to work with. Average rates sit around £15.75/hour (outside London) or £16.50 (inside London). Our pricing is ‘all-in’ and we offer total transparency.

Where do you operate?

We currently have lots of GrandNannies available in Brighton and London. If you live elsewhere, please register as we are expanding.

Who’s behind GrandNanny?

GrandNanny is founded by social entrepreneur, Adele Aitchison. Witnessing the UK’s childcare crisis whilst volunteering with an intergenerational charity, sparked an idea. Why not bring the proven scientific benefits of intergenerational programmes into a practical childcare service? GrandNanny is backed by some of the UK’s best childcare entrepreneurs and social impact investors.
